We love our children. We don't want to see them hurt, neglected, or mistreated in any way. Now that we agree... I will start with my child's first day. I had this gut feeling but I ignored it. I thought, "there are so many kids here, it can't be bad..." And I was wrong. It's price point, at $75/wk with no registration fee, is appealing and may be the only price many parents in the area can afford. That alone is enough for some parents to over look a few things like the teachers not speaking English or kids running all over the facility like... Kids allowed to run all over a facility. My baby was neglected and left scared in a room. IN FRONT OF ME. I spied through a window and witnessed this myself. My child was hungry and sad when they were picked up and grabbing at me like their life depended on it. I do not recommend this school. It is not DCF accredited. It's accredited by an organization that the founder is a member of. Also, the founder was found guilty of child abuse but because it was his first offense, the case was dropped when he attended "counseling." I don't know about you, but is it worth it? I placed a stop payment on our check and pulled my child in the firat WEEK!
My two year old started Grace Community about three months ago and in her first week alone, she got a double ear infection and bronchitis. Her third week she got head lice and every time we clear her up and she goes back she comes home with more bugs in her hair! This past week she's come home with a bumpy rash on her neck, turns out she's got scabies! This place is disgusting and I have never been so aggravated with a school in my life.
I love Grace Community, and so does my 2 year old daughter! She asks to go to school on the weekends;). She loves her teachers. The staff there is warm and caring towards the children. My daughter's vocabulary has grown by leaps and bounds and she has picked up a little Spanish! During the summer they had bounce houses and water slides for the kids, Clown Day ad Pirate Day. They do a lot with the children. I would recommend this school to anyone!
My kids have been going to Grace Community in Ft Myers for 3 years. I am very happy that we chose this school. My chidren are always excited about wearing their 'whales t-shirts' on Fridaysso that they can be in 'The Whale Shirt Parade'. They love Bible time so much that I have noticed them 'teaching' their own'class' durin playtime at home. And my 4 year old can already read very well thanks to their eading program. I am very thankful for Grace Communityand all of it's loving staff! Keep up the good work!
We have been attending Grace Community School for several years now. I feel safe having my children there and both my children love the school and teachers. Thanks Grace Community for taking good care of our precious little ones.
I would rate them a 9 out of ten because they do seem to care about the children but I dont like how when you come to pick up your kid they call it back to the teachers I would prefer to get my child from the class so I could check how the teacher is handling the children and what they are doing with out their knowing I am there. Miss eric is great with my daughter and she is a good teacher from what I see. they do all need to get better organized with children things and etc. they need a lot more room of course. I think they should also do prograss reports on how the child is doing week by week and let the parents know when the kid did good or bad...
